Nelly’s New Girlfriend Claims She Didn’t Steal Him from Ashanti
By: Amanda Anderson-Niles
It’s been a rather interesting couple of months for former Hip Hop couple Ashanti and Nelly. The former couple pulled a Beyonce and Jay-Z and never really spoke publicly about their relationship, but it was always common knowledge that they were together. And they were romantically linked for years. However, it was reported a couple of months ago that they had called it off, and rumors suggest things ended because of infidelity. Some of the urban gossip blogs suggested Ashanti cheated, while Ashanti’s camp is claiming that it was Nelly who had been unfaithful to the R&B singer and songwriter.
And since things are over, the shade thrown between these two and their associates has been pretty thick. Now things are downright “ratchet,” as Ashanti’s younger sister Shia even threatened Nelly’s new girlfriend up and coming actress and video vixen Tae Heckard not to come to New York anytime soon because she’d get dealt with. Tae wasn’t in the least bit moved by the warning, and even Nelly took to his Twitter account to suggest that he doubts Ashanti’s little sis is “bout that life.”
Despite that, Ashanti’s loyal fans have been in Tae’s mentions since the news broke and she’s pretty much been given the “jump off” and “side piece” labels. But Tae finally addressed the situation on her Twitter account and informed her critics that she didn’t break Nelly and Ashanti up, nor has she ever been anyone’s “side piece.”
